Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

The cholesterol levels would be normal because of the medication unless there are a lot of other lifestyle changes eg significant change of diet and an increase in physical activity.

If there has been a change in diet with the use of a lot of fiber and a reduction in fatty/fried foods and also an increase in activity then it is possible that the diet and activity may keep the cholesterol down and you can stop the medication. You would need to discuss this with your doctor and your levels would need to be checked in a 6 weeks to 3 months.

If there has not been a significant change in diet or activity then it is best to continue the medication.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
